vLKAfter setup-root, configuring my system, configuring and compiling kernel and finally installing it to /boot03:23
vLKI run grub-install onto /dev/sda1, which is, for the record, the only partition apart from swap.03:23
vLKIt fails to write a grub VBR...03:24
vLKMBR* even03:24
vLKHelp would be appreaciated :)03:25
vLKCorrection, I run grub-install onto /dev/sda.03:26
vLKa bit absentminded this early in the morning03:27
juevLK: sorry, cannot help because I don't use grub, but one possible problem might be that grub doesn't support ext403:34
vLKI see03:34
vLKI will try in a VirtualBox with ext3 then.03:35
vLKThank you :)03:35
vLKI need dualboot to Windows because my web banking software has no Linux support.03:35

Romsterhow does that work you update xorg-server first then some of it's dependencies like libx11 after. don't you usually work your way up the dependencies tree.05:55
tilmanldd /usr/bin/Xorg|grep -i libx1105:57
Romsterok i don't know where i got the crazy idea that xorg-server depended on libx11.06:02
Romsteroh yes i do....06:03
Romster$ finddeps xorg-server|grep libx1106:03
Romsterxorg-libx11 (xorg)06:03
* Romster shrugs06:03
Romsterguess that finddeps is broken06:03
tilman<3 romster06:04
Romsterthat's one script i have never hacked at either :D06:05

Romsterok xorg-server sues libx11 for Xnest and possibly a few other things. so it depends on configuration. so finddeps is not broken.06:21
Romsterfrinnst, lol, guess they never heard of one hand on mouse other on sandwich06:23
Romsterlooks more like one of them harmonic holders.06:23

Evil_Bobfrinnst: firefox4 gives me a warning it needs gconf, i dont have it installed atm17:26
frinnstme neither17:30
Evil_Boboh hmm, will check it out later in more detail then, might be i screwed something up maybe :)17:32
frinnstill try building in a clean chroot17:33
frinnsthmm, built fine18:47
Romsterfirefox4 much better than 3? and i've often wondered if it's even worth splitting xulrunner and firefox ports. i know of nothing that depends on xulrunner.18:50
frinnstmm, same here18:50
Romsterother than firefox itself.18:50
frinnsti cant really tell if its faster by regular use. the new js engine is apparently lots improved18:51
Romsterbookmarks have always been a problem for me but i gout around 20,000 or so in firefox3.18:53
Romsteri would of figured searching in sqilte3 would be super fast. which it is not. it hangs firefox3's UI for ages.18:53
frinnst20k bookmarks?18:53
frinnstdude, youre not normal :D18:53
Romsteryes it's insane amount.18:53
Romsterand i use tagsieve add-on18:54
Romsteri really need to prune alot of them18:57
Romsterbut the point is firefox3 had claimed to be fast on bookmarks. i have yet to see otherwise.18:58
Romsteri'm not on some slow system either.18:58
frinnstin some sense firefox keeps getting shittier with every release18:59
frinnsti remember when it forked from the mozilla suite.. it was supposed to be a stripped down browser with few features. user extensions were supposed to house all the fancy stuff19:00
Romsteryeah it comes with the kitchen sink now. i am surprised it does not have a torrent client like opera does.19:02
Romsterbeing the bloatware it is.19:02
Romsteri'd move to midori permanently but it's lacking some things that firefox has.19:03
frinnstscrew it, zzzzzzz19:19
Romstermust be tired frinnst19:23
Romsteri used to use the mozilla suite and i thought that was a great browser then this firefox that's meant to be sleaker came out and i was all i want now.19:23
Romsteri expect most of that firefox browser is not multi threaded.19:24
Romsterand seprate threads for the UI and backend.19:24
Evil_Bobfrinnst: firefox4 port works fine here btw, i had a fake gconf installed :)20:24
* Romster wishes gconf wasn't forced on us non-gnome users.20:25
Evil_Bobi agree :)20:26
